The House Lurcher
For those who would share their lives with the graceful, intelligent lurcher, there was until this book was published little information on how to cope with that mysterious sighthound temperament in a domestic environment. As a result of many training enquiries received over the years, Jackie Drakeford has written The House lurcher for owners of pet lurchers and domestic greyhounds.
Through the book, the reader will learn how to live happily with their lurcher at home and in public. In particular, they will learn to establish a sound recall so that their lurcher can be exercised with confidence off the lead. All aspects of owning and training lurchers are covered in detail, with special attention given to those coming in from rescue homes.
